say one last thing? just for everybody's edification, the reason the law came into existence, which is the law that set up the security plan, was because the ywca rented a place out for a birthday party, and a 15-year-old kid got shot because it wasn't a birthday party. >> thank you. and is there any public comment relating to this license application? okay. seeing none, the matter is with the commission. to do we have a motion? >> i move to approve this permit. with the conditions that they notify mission statement of all llp-permit style events and come up with a security plan for said events. >> okay. is there a second on that motion? >> i second that. >> all right, call the roll. >> commissioner hyde? >> aye. >> commissioner joseph? >> aye. >> commissioner lee? >> commissioner tan? >> aye. >> commissioner lee? >> aye. >> president newlin? >> aye. >> good luck and keep control of those poetry readings.

heart put forth the message to law enforcement nationwide to refuse the execution of terry williams and also to make sure that dr. jessie mcdonald, regardless of how his case comes out, is not sent back to prison because our law enforcement is a very powerful tool and our sheriffs are the number one authority in the country, not the feds. and, so, it is given that the promised land will be found by the mystical magical beautiful path of a 40-day general strike. it is time for the students and the women to lead this nation with a beautiful 40-day general strike where we spend time with our families, our gardens, and put this corruption in d.c. on down from the bankers and all these greedy corrupt people to their knees and know that california is the most powerful state and we are the ones chosen to lead the way. blessings. >> thank you, sir. (applause) >> next speaker. >>> good afternoon, supervisors, commissioners. shaman walton, [speaker not understood]. just wanted to touch on what supervisor cohen was referring to earlier. in the summer of 2011 ycd was funding from the shipyard p

present. you know, i've known scott weaner for many years. we went to law school together, and i think something he said about our youth today is something that is very, very important for us to remember. you know, as youth, you always have the concept of the invincibility of youth and we've all had that. you're a young person, you don't think that anything can happen to you. but the reality is that for folks who are part of this newer generation, they didn't go through that. and i think it's important for us to underscore the severity of this disease, of this illness, and it's still des mating many communities. and it is especially low-income communities, communities of color, you have gay african-american men, latino men infected on a daily basis. people forget we still have people dying of aids. i had a close friend of mine who recently passed away of aids, michael goldstein, and he was an advocate for hiv prevention for finding a cure for hiv. and you can think of so many michael goldsteins. and dr. colfax and other people mentioned that. their memory lives on. and i think that we

last two years navigating a large and steep learning curve sunshine law, the health codes, learning to build coalitions, getting to know supervisors. and i would ask you to reappoint me so that i can continue my work on behalf of all san francisco's animals. thank you. >> thank you. susanna, i did have a quick question. first of all, thank you for your service on the commission already. could you speak to one issue or a legislation that you took particular interest in over your term as a commissioner? something that you worked on that you prioritized during your term. >>> okay. yes, i think the first thing that comes to mind is the fate of the ferrel cat kohl i inin the west end of golden gate park. and i was asked by community leaders to come out and look at the site. and we talked with rec and park about maintaining good habitat for this established colony. so, i think in general ferrel cats and wildlife and the indoor action between them, but that's an issue that i was involved with with the community. >> thank you. >>> um-hm. >> so, last but not least we have shari o'neill. >>>

chicago and i practiced law for 50 years. mayor daly, the real richard daly, he ran the city with an iron fist. but everything he did was open and [speaker not understood]. he was well known because that was when he was asked, why only a citizen [speaker not understood], one of his sons, he said, if you can't give it to your kids, who can you give it to? well, that's something he did in chicago, but everybody [speaker not understood]. here it's different and i think the mayor could learn a lot. mayor daly, i'm talking about. everything is handled differently. but the end result is the same because the two institutions that were designed for protection of open government have been [speaker not understood]. am i finished? >> you can finish your sentence, please. >>> you know who they are, the task force who will have new members who never attended the meetings, mr. capell the only exception, and we know about the ethics commission which has done nothing, nothing in all the years it's had referrals from the task force. thank you. >> thank you. >>> good afternoon, supervisors. i'm richar

. your in-laws, cousins. and follow instruction. also given the impression that this perpetrators, they believe they are using application drugs to make their victims unconscious and follow instructions. there's no evidence so far, even when i was working in hong kong, we never found any evidence on that. but there is a strong belief in that. second thing i want to say is language barriers. we found out in ones we have attacked in san francisco we find there is a huge limitation in this language services. i'm helping and actually i was donating a lot of my personal time in translating personal documents because they don't have an officer who have capacity of getting document translated. i think i covered most of my points because -- >> i just want to say thank you for your work. i really believe you go across the entire city above and beyond and you have done a lot of volunteering of your time. i'm sure you have done this a lot. i just want to say thank you for your service. it is really important. we rely a lot on you in the city. there should be more of you in terms of doing wha

. >>> good evening, my name is laura, i'm the statewide education rights director for council law center and we appreciate the time actually the superintendent, special superintendent has taken in pulling input from the community on this important m-o-u. at public council we have represented and provided support to thousands of students who have been pushed out of school and into the school to prison pipeline. if we want to really increase our graduation rates as we talked about this evening, in particular for our students who are most vulnerable and our students of color, school discipline must be handled by our schools first and foremost and not our police officers. the research shows very clearly that even one contact with the juvenile justice system quadruples a young person's chance of dropping out. so, this m-o-u really must focus on who we are referring to law enforcement, for what reasons we're doing it and utilize alternatives to arrest and ensure ongoing accountability along the lines of what these young people talked about. where the community knows what the data is, what the

sunset district. i really am appreciative of the law enforcement and community-based agencies that are here with us today. how they have really worked together to try to crack down to make sure people are aware of these scams and we can as a city kind of move forward to prevent them for the future. so this hearing is on a number of these types of scams that have happened over the past few months. they tend to target older chinese women in san francisco. since january of this year there have been a series reported. again, it is older asian or chinese women. it involves the theft of jewelry and money obtained under false pretense. nearly 50 of these cases have been reported in san francisco. it's totaled over $1.5 million of losses in cash and jewelry. many of these cases also again have taken place not only in chinatown but also sunset and richmond district. similar cases also have been reported in new york, chicago, boston and seattle. i wanted to invite up a number of the reps from our law enforcement and community agencies from the police department, san francisco district attorney's

. that plan is mandated by state law and its purpose is to really figure out what the transportation needs for the city long-term are. and, so, i think it's important for us to begin the discussion of what those needs are, what the future looks like, and what the challenges in meeting the needs that the city has and will have, what those challenges will be. we need to think about this issue and specifically focus on ways in which we can bring revenue into the system, the kinds of investments that need to be made not only by the county transportation authority, but other agencies like the san francisco mta. i look forward to a substantive discussion. and again, this is the beginning of this discussion and we know that we will have additional discussions that will take place. i also want to note that because of the good work of our staff at the authority, we recently received some money on the planning front. we actually received half a million dollars from caltrans, a planning grant and it's a grant that will allow for work to be done in various neighborhoods to really think about the

of youth. that's a program that's had a lot of success, sb 10 88 was signed into law this year. hopefully providing also some smooth transition with youth coming out of the justice system enrolled back into school. so, i think the arrest trends that are highlighted in our report, and i would be happy to get you copies of them, is sore of worth a hearing in and of itself. but i think in terms of especially as you discussed barriers, making the connection between all of these and maybe we need a multi-system approach to ensuring that youth get the education that they need because often barriers occur. those other systems that are not necessarily immediately educationally related. so, thank you very much. >> so, again, i just want to thank you for really convening this hearing and moving forward. and i know we've gone over our time, but, you know, to try and consolidate the work that's been done over the last 40 years to address the issue, it's really difficult. i did just want to leave you with a couple of things just in terms of what we've considered and discussed within the afr
